on september 11. many believe the obama administration initially covered up what was a terrorist attack by saying the violence might have been generated by an anti-muslim tape. we now know ambassador stevens, foreign service officer sean smith, former navy seal and two others were killed in a planned terrorist attack. the situation has the potential, potential to damage president obama's reelection chances. let's take it step by step in a methodical way. on september 12, president obama reacted to the murder of ambassador stevens by first discussing the anti-muslim tape. >> we reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others, but there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. none. >> bill: the next day, secretary of state hillary clinton made a public statement again emphasizing the tape. >> the united states government had absolutely nothing to do with this video. we absolutely reject its content and message. america's commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. >> bill: notice no mention of the possibility
no actionable intelligence requiring increased security. then, the attack. and obama and his administration wouldn't call it terrorism for 14 days. but the evidence is piling up on barack obama. within hours of the attacks, obama officials received numerous intelligence reports indicating the attacks were organized and al qaeda was involved. communications intercepted between al qaeda and libyan militants, bragging about the attack. every sign pointed to terrorism. but for two long weeks, obama and his team blamed... a video. why? for political reasons. it was in obama's interest to not portray the attack as terrorism on the anniversary of 9/11. the intelligence was there. clear signs of rich, but campaign politics came first. the evidence is mounting as more questions arise, what did this president know? and when did he know it? >> sean: pretty serious. what's more important, big bird or -- let's see, security requests denied, lies that this was a spontaneous attack on this consulate that murdered four people, protecting al qaeda in the process because they were the ones responsible. then,
scandal on libya. we are finding out that the obama administration was warned, they were requested aid by ambassador stevens. they refused to put up a barbed wire fence because it might look bad like it might look bad to investigate leads at the ft. hood terrorist and vulght, 13 or 14 people killed there, 4 people killed here. they lie about a video when they knew immediately afterward, they had direct evidence that this was a planned attack, not as a result of a video, but to admit otherwise, would show the wholesale breakdown of his policy which is do say, if you are nice to al qaeda and woo them, they will like us and we won't have any more war with them. the truth is, laura logan has even pointed out how felashes that was, there is no such thing as a kinder, gentler taliban. there is no such thing as an al qaeda that doesn't want to kill us, even if we remove ourselves from the middle-east-- >>> listen, i hope obama brings up shamus the dog again. that's how small -- you know why? then i get to play the tape of obama admitting that he ate a dog. if that's how small they want to go
: in a move that is beneath the dignity of the oval office, it appears that the obama administration changed the monthly jobs report for political gain. after he was crushed at the denver debate, the labor department announced that the unemployment rate dropped magically to 7.8% in september. and the job registered more than 800,000. that's one of the biggest one-month jumps in 29 years. let me say this one more time. the biggest jump since 1983, convenient, considering that barack obama finds himself in the midst of perhaps the worst political week of his life. while the president claims that the unexpected news is a sign that america is, quote, moving forward, there are a growing number of skeptics that are crying foul. chief is the former g.e. ceo jack welch. unbelievable job numbers. they can't debate so they change the numbers. he appeared earlier today on "your world." >> these numbers don't smell right when you think about where the economy is right now. every economist predicted roughly 90,000 to 120,000. this economy doesn't feel like the employment improved this level. it is just -
, situation here where the obama administration blew it. and are actually accusing the administration of misleading the public. the obama administration denies that. hindsight is 20/20. but there's no doubt about it. there were requests they didn't feel safe. they needed more. let's face it. the facts play out that they had, very good suspicion and they were right. >> and this was not a good time for the hearing, for the obama administration. >> no. >> especially 20-something days away from the election. >> got that right. >> tough. >>> talk about lawyers and jerry sandusky, they say they will fight the attempts to take away his penn state pension. the retirement pension told sandusky will no longer receive $4,900 monthly check. in light of his conviction on child sex charges. sandusky received a total of $900,000 in pension payments between his retirement in 1999 and last month. >> wow. >> that's -- that's a sweet retirement deal. >> $900,000. >> that's a lot. wow. >> apparently the decision rests on analysis that he remained a de facto employee of penn state in the years after his 1

they're finding facts and critics say it is all about finding fault with the obama administration with 27 days left until the presidential election. so the goal of this hearing, again, live pictures, is to learn what exactly happened in benghazi, in libya, in the months before and the day of this september 11th attacks in these two compounds. the u.s. consulate there on the left, and also that safe house just about half a mile away. you know the story. four americans killed u.s. ambassador chris stevens, foreign service officer shawn smith and security officers glen doherty and ty woods. the chair of the government committee that initiated this hearing opened up by saying the state department was, quote, coming clean as it released new details just last night. those details include officials saying that attack at the consulate in benghazi was impossible to defend. and today, a regional security officer testified the assault was something the united states had never seen before at a diplomatic outpost. >> i had not seen an attack of such ferocity and intensity previously in libya.
't think they were responsible, but the careerist on the one hand and the obama administration on the other. you know, you have backlit with secretary clinton. she is on record several times as saying the violence was caused by the video, famously, ambassador rice said that the white house spokesman said it. but if there is consistency, it appears to be in the rear side of the state department, saying from the get-go that it was a terrorist attack. that will be an interesting centerpiece to this hearing today. is this a real bureaucracy versus the white house? jenna: let's talk about the procedure. you were an ambassador, he worked for the state department, you were a member of the president's cabinet -- just the same as ambassador rice at this time. as information breaks and comes in, is there any chance that different people get different information and perhaps that happened here? >> yes, well, i was not a member of the president's cabinet. this may be part of the problem. all you have to cabinet officials in the state department. that is a prescription for potential trouble. but obvious

administration. >> sean: now according to "the new york times," the obama campaign actually thinks that biden will give them the comeback they valle desperately. if they're counting on joe biden to save the day, maybe they're counting on the wrong guy. the author of the new book "here come the black helicopters: u.n. goble governance and loss of freedom," former clinton advisor dick morris. same biden who said he was going to raise taxes by a trillion dollars, 500,000 jobs a month are coming, and 2012 fewer jobs than 2011 fewer than 2010. is that the guy that's going to save the day? >> well, i think they should change the format, sean. instead of biden against ryan, it should be biden against biden. that way i think we'll get a fair exposition. this isn't two men auditioning for the job, even somebody judging as to whether biden deserves re-election. in this case, it's kind of like the spokesman for romney against the spokesman for obama. paul ryan is a uniquely articulate person with a uniquely profound understanding of what's going on in this country. i believe he's going to run rings arou
of american influence, which is a policy that the obama administration has pursued quite consciously, and we're now seeing the effects of it. the examples you give, the determination to withdraw from afghanistan on a fixed timetable that's basically turning the country back over to the taliban. the inability to stop iran's pursuit of nuclear weapons or its continued financing and arming of terrorists in the region and around the world. all of these things put together give a picture of a weak and declining america. i think what governor romney was trying to say today is that we're best able to prevent conflict and protect american interests through a strong american presence, not a weak and declining american presence. >> sean: yeah, i thought that was interesting. if we don't lead, the wrong people will be leading in the world. i think one of the most disgraceful events that have happened, two of them back-to-back, when the president said he couldn't meet with president netanyahu when he was in new york to speak before the united nations.

the obama administration. what do you make of this, chris? >> well, you're exactly right. obama had a bad first debate and you don't want to have two bad debates in a row. i don't think that biden will. you know, it's interesting, i interviewed paul ryan last week and talked to him about, about biden and i said what do you think of biden? you've been studying him obviously and prepping for him. he said, look, he's a very experienced guy and been in this for 40 years and you're not going to throw him off his game. and i said, yeah, how about the gaffes? he says he makes those in exte extempraneous on the stump and i don't think that he was spinning me, a strong determined biden. what's fascinating is the contrast between these guys, an old school liberal in the case of biden and a young gun conservative in the case of paul ryan and i mean, these guys couldn't be further apart in their outlook on the government and what they think are the solutions for the country over the next four years. >> and the way they speak, too, right, guys? and paul ryan we talking to huckabee, does paul ryan run

, the bush administration and obama administration, we always knew that u.s. consulates and embassies are absolutely prime targets for terrorist attacks. we've seen this before in the bush administration, we had attacks in the consulate in karachi and pakistan in saudi arabia, in jeddah, in syria, and elsewhere throughout the region. so this is not entirely new. we know the threat is there. i think what we've seen in libya is, obviously a government which still had a real challenge in using its own forces to protect the limited u.s. presence and very legitimate questions now about the degree of security that was there at the embassy. from what i understand, there still was no long specific actual intelligence about this attack, but it's quite clear there was a threat in libya generally, a specific threat that we'd seen over the previous couple months in benghazi, and now obviously the congress and the executive branch have to look hard and see should that security have been heightened, but as you noted, the diplomatic security within the state department has long been a target of budg
in light of how proabortion the obama administration has been and how he has come out for same sex marriage, clearly in opposition to catholic church teaching. and especially in relationship to this. now, what joe by deb is probably parsing here -- biden is parsing here is the only way you can get away with it is say we are not providing the contraceptives our insurance companies are. so it's a transference. it's still your money going to the insurance company and the insurance company is providing it it's a nice way to try to trick the system. i think people have of integrity know that if it's still your money essentially that's providing it doesn't matter if you are using a third party to do it. it's like saying i didn't buy those drugs. i gave the money to a kid who went out and bought the drugs. it's ridiculous. >> i haven't heard a lot about it on the campaign trail. maybe we will 24 days. the governor sticking around for this in 2008 the president said he would bridge the partisan divide. new polls say he is making us more divided. the surprising results next. >> and it turns out thos
of the failures, i believe, of the obama administration that eventually will come out. but here is what i am going to predict. we have seen a lot of smoke blowing. i think we are going to see whistle blowing. here is why. people in the intelligence community are insulted, they have been denigrated. they have been held in essence out to dry for this whole debacle. and i guarantee you some of these people who are highly professional who put their lives and their families' lives on the lines to do what they do are going to at some point going to start saying okay, we're going to get the truth out. it's going to start leaking. you will see stories within the next 10 days that will spill some beans. >> that's already happened in terms of acre nordstrom and andrew wood the two guys that were with -- they came forward because they wanted to talk about what he was going on on the ground in benghazi. we want to move to the debate and some of the style issues over substance what did you think about joe biden's affect his demeanor. >> was he affected? i think he clearly was. somewhere two thirds of the way i
